To qualify for the St Kitts and Nevis second passport program, the Government requires an investment either in a designated real estate project or a cash contribution to the Sugar Industry Diversification Foundation (SIDF).

Due to the high demand, the government of St. Kitts and Nevis voted recently an increase of the investment amount and the government application fees for their economic citizenship program.


St. Kitts and Nevis Hurricane Relief Investment Fund 

(Limited Time Offer Available Until March 30, 2018)

The HRF requires a non-refundable contribution that meets the following financial requirements: 

  1. $150,000 USD for a single applicant 
  2. $150,000 USD for a family of 4 - main applicant, spouse, and 2 dependents (children and parents) 
  3. $25,000 USD for any additional qualified dependent  
  4. Due diligence and application processing fees

This is a fantastic opportunity for citizenship applicants to make a positive impact on the environment and current citizens of St. Kitts and Nevis, while also securing a second citizenship and passport. 


Free Assessment


Beginning 1st January 2012, the following minimum investment and fees are applicable:

Real Estate Investment Option

Under the Real Estate option, the applicant should invest a minimum amount of 
US$400,000.00 in a pre-approved real estate project. Please note that only villas and condominium units from an approved developer will qualify you for citizenship.

Two or more applicants may apply for citizenship by investment together by purchasing one piece of real estate provided that each main applicant contributes the minimum investment of US$400,000.00 towards the investment.

The subsequent property buyer can apply for citizenship after the 5 years-hold period.

In addition to the investment requirement, the following processing and due diligence fees are payable to the government of St Kitts and Nevis:

Government Fees

Main applicant - US$50,000.00

Please note that the applicant should pay the legal fees for the purchase, registration, and the tax of the property.

SIDF Investment Option

Under this option, the applicant is to make a donation to the Sugar Industry Diversification Foundation (SIDF). There are four different categories under the SIDF:

  • Single applicant - US$250,000.00

  • Applicant with up to 3 dependants - US$300,000.00

  • Applicant with up to 5 dependents - US$350,000.00

Additional contribution for each dependent above seven dependants - US$50,000.00

Additional contribution for each qualified dependent (unmarried, dependent children, or parents) of the main applicant above the age of eighteen years, other than his or her spouse - US$50,000.00

The contribution into the SIDF escrow account will be made after the applicant has been approved in principal. At this stage, applicants shall be given 90 days to transfer the funds.

Due Diligence Fees

For the main applicant - US$7,500

Dependants above 16 years - US$4,000

Due diligence fees are payable at the time of initial submission of the application; therefore, the fees will no longer be included in the donation amount.

The Citizenship-by-Investment Unit (CIU) is the Government Authority which handles all matters concerning Citizenship-by-Investment in the Federation of St Kitts and Nevis.

Applications for citizenship cannot be lodged directly with the Citizenship-by-Investment Unit, but can only be handled by an authorized local service provider or local lawyers.
